    I have 2 1/2" spacers on mine and I can only turn the steering wheels 3/4 of a turn. I would make sure to check your clearance before you put the $$$ into spacers, you might have to put it toward a widetrack in steed.

    I used 2" spacers and I too have a steering issue as mentioned before in an older post. I had to put stoppers on my lower control arms to prevent the wheel from turning too far.
    Wider control arms is the best way to go. Next time for sure..

    I have used 1 inch spacers on my car without hitting the tire on the fenders. The scrub radius is what you need to watch out for when doing this set up. On a 355 the tire should sit one inch inside the fender lip and not hit the trailing edge of the front bumper. If you need a set, I have a contact who will make them for you. Several people on this site have purchased them for their set ups. The rear seems to work well with 2 - 4 inch spacers. The idea is to stiffen up the rear suspension with an anti-sway bar and stiffer springs so the wheel does not move up and down to much.

    With the car jacked up the tire will almost hit the front bumper. If the scrub radius is to wide this will hit every time you turn the wheel.

    By the way, this one is ok when sitting on the ground.

    I have a wide track slalom suspension on FunnyWheels. I do use 2 inch spacers on the rear of the car to properly space out the rim without it interfering with the shock.
